"If the vehicle goes into limp-home mode, incompatible software between Electric Vehicle Control Unit and Battery Pack Control Module may cause the electric propulsion system to fully shut down," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "An electric propulsion system shutdown will cause a stall-like condition."
FCA US spokesman Eric Mayne told Edmunds there are no injuries or crashes linked to the recall.
The affected cars were built from March 27, 2012 to November 1, 2014.
Edmunds says: Owners should wait for their official recall notice before scheduling a service appointment. But if you are experiencing a problem, it's best to contact your dealer now.
